Hamburg Airport wellness services await the next time you travel. Earlier this year, I attended the 2017 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. Accordingly, I was able to explore Hamburg Airport for wellness services.
However, besides exploring what healthy and happy finds the airport offered, I couldn’t find my passport before my departure. I was desperate because there is no Canadian consulate in Hamburg and I would have had to fly to another city to get a new passport.
Actually, I had a suspicion I had dropped my passport at the airport. Yet, what are the odds of finding it? Ultimately, I called the airport security lost and found and they had my passport. True story! As a result, I now keep my passport close at all times.
